Postmates CEO Says He’s Raising Money Again In January To Build The ‘Anti-Amazon’

November 6, 2015 | By |

Ask Bastian Lehmann, the CEO of delivery service startup Postmates, what company he’s gunning for, and you might be surprised. It isn’t Lyft and it isn’t Uber, whose forays into food delivery don’t have him worried in the slightest.

“We’re building the anti-Amazon,” he said.

It’s a bold statement–one he isn’t afraid to repeat. But in order for Postmates to get there, the company will need more capital according to its chief executive. During an interview with FORBES on Thursday, the 38-year-old German entrepreneur noted that despite raising $80 million in June, the company will likely seek more funding as early as next January. Lehmann declined to state how much he hopes to raise or at what valuation, but said that it could possibly be from a late-stage or private equity investor.
